The complex nature of public-sector organizations, as well as current transformations and upheavals, represent doubtlessly a great challenge for managers. The manager must be a strategist capable of dealing with all sorts of situations in a multidimensional environment. The issues of ecological transition and digital transformation entail necessary adaptations that need to be managed and supported collectively.

Cooperation and collaboration between members of the same team, adaptation to change, managing IT tools and effective communication are the keys to the smooth running of a department. One should focus on collective intelligence and the need to collaborate. However, this is only possible if the manager knows how to support and guide his or her staff with precise objectives, while taking into account the human dimension.
